I've been searching high and low for a dish or two I used to get as a child (back in the 80's) out of a take out place called Jack's Chinese in Bellflower. The place is still there but they have changed their menu. I don't remember what Jack's called it but the dish was flat squares (and I mean square) of duck, probably pressed and deep fried, kind of hard and chewy, surrounded in a dark sweet and sour sauce. I also loved the sub gum chicken chow mein with crispy noodles and paper wrapped chicken (more common on menus but never as good as I remember). Lately, I've also been thinking about this fried chicken they had, it had a very thick bready breading on little chicken legs or thighs, i don't remember which, soaked in a bright red sweet and sour sauce. I've finally found the duck dish on Quan's website described as Almond Duck -"Sweet and sour pressed duck". They also serve the other dishes as well, (except for the s&s chicken) which, if all are done right, would make a lovely meal for me! I'm a little leery about heading out there for chow though, reading some negative things about their "sushi" and the fact that they are also a nightclub, bar and hookah lounge. I'd also love to hear about other recs for good chinese food not too far from me- I live in North Orange County- but will travel for anything like I've described. Thanx!
